The morning bite has been by far the best.

Posted: October 20, 2010

Not much has changed around here since our last report. We are still enjoying tremendous walleye fishing trolling crank baits.  We have had some pretty windy days that has hampered our mobility every now and then and some of our guides were able to put together a pretty decent jig bite during these times.  We have had a number of hunters take advantage of our “hunter’s special” package and we have been able to treat them to some very good fishing to add to their trip.

Overall, the full day groups have had better fishing as they have been able to take advantage of the morning bite which has been phenominal!  We do still catch fish in the afternoons but lately the morning bite has been by far the best.

These are some of the nicest walleyes of the year and every week seems to out do the previous one.  We do still have some availability for the last week of October and as long as the weather stays nice, the walleye fishing will be world class!

Good luck fishing Everybody!

The weather is as good as it gets and so is the walleye fishing!

Posted: October 6, 2010

The weather is as good as it gets and so is the walleye fishing!  We have an incredible run this fall catching some of the nicest walleyes of the year. We are still enjoying the best trolling crank bait bites we have ever experienced on Devils Lake and every week it just keeps on getting better.

Some areas we are trolling lead core and other areas we are using plain fireline but the no matter where we are fishing we are still having our best luck pulling Salmo Hornets, Berkley Flicker Shads, and jointed shad raps. All in the number 5 size.

We have also had some spurts of catching walleyes jigging as well but the jig bite has not been even close to the consistency that we have had trolling crank baits.

We have had a very busy fall so far but we do still have openings the rest of October for both of our full day trips and our have day trips and we would love to have you!

Sunny skies, a little wind and warmer temps has been making Devils Lake fishing a success!

Posted:

Hello Anglers…….sunny skies a little wind and warmer temps has been making Devils Lake fishing a success. Reports this past week have been pretty good for the most part. Anglers moving around the most and trying different methods are having the best of luck. Pitching and trolling cranks remains to be the best method on catching nicer fish. Not the numbers but the size is there. The weed beds and shallower tree lines in east bay have been successfull with the right wind. Penny bay outside and inside the bay have been good, north of the stromme addition along the dike and weed beds, dairy farm and haybale bay have been some good spots. Doc hagens, old and new mill bays, howard farm area, and scattered spots up in Pelican lake…( Refuge Iland, small bays to the west, and north end of the tracks for pitching.) If you want to troll moon bars, old road of refuge island, and pelican ridge have been the better spots. Crank in 5-10 FOW and troll in 12-25 FOW. Brighter colors have been the best since the lake is still pretty murky. Live bait fishermen spinners and bottom bouncers on pretty much any old shoreline, deeper points and rock piles have been working. Leeches, crawlers, and minnows have all been bait of choice. Any of the bridges are also producing fish in the mornings and evenings. Use a jig tipped with a minnow. Good eating size fish are being caught at 57 bridge, 6 miles bridge and mauvis coolee bridge.

There are still quite a few birds around but with these nice days we are having the bird hunting is a hit and miss. Pheasent season opens this weekend, lots of good reports on pheasents. Good luck to all, keep those lines tight!!
